marigny opera house bride groom portraitSome things just feel like magic, and this wedding was just that.  Renee and Nick combined the nostalgia of the 20′s with the intimacy of a small destination wedding, with their free spirited & anything goes mentality.  Some weddings inspire us with over the top decor, and others just by sheer size, but this one lit us up with it’s simplicity and style, not to mention the warmth we felt from each and every guest there.  This Gatsby themed wedding was one of the greats, with everyone at the wedding participating.  Adam and I agreed that each of us felt like we’d stepped into Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, really experiencing a true 1920′s New Orleans wedding.  The Marigny Opera house, a bit off the French Quarter was the perfect backdrop, and added to the authentic atmosphere.  Still, even with the unique style, food, music, and setting of this wedding, what stands out the most is the people.  More like friends than clients, and more like family than friends even, we have a special place in our hearts for Renee and Nick, and feel grateful to have been a part of this one of a kind evening.

Wedding traditions certainly vary between cultures and religions, but having been a part of many weddings over the years, we’ve seen the personal touches and traditions that are unique to families and groups of friends.  We hear more and more that the most important wedding-related thing to couples is that their guests really enjoy themselves, which (aside from being a refreshing side-step from the less important things that often take precedence) often highlights the personal traditions, pastimes, and interests of those we get the pleasure of meeting!  Morgan and Kris, however, took this to a new level, and planned their wedding party at Mercury Hall (the actual ceremony was held a week earlier in their home of Seattle) around the Austin City Limits music festival and their anniversary.  With many of their out-of-town guests attending the music festival (never have I photographed a welcome bag, complete with festival wristband!), this wedding was the one-of-a-kind dinner party to kick off the fun!  Full of color and texas flare,  this gorgeous event was brought to us by seattle-based event stylist and curator Dandy & Fine Parties , with coordinating by Cara at Your Wedding Your Way.  Thank you Morgan and Kris for your amazing fun-loving attitude, and for this refreshing take on tradition!

Just like ike the T-shirt says, we heart NY.  We’re lucky enough to head there on a semi-regular basis, and were able to stop on our way home from Paris in September.  Lisbeth and Earl, however, reserved a location north of the city that was oozing history, dripping with memories of the golden age.  This engagement session, shot primarily in Untermeyer Gardens, was such a treat for Adam and I.  Often, Adam and I recommend that our couples really make the most of the session by dressing more formal, or stepping into an outfit that they normally wouldn’t, just for the fun of it!  I don’t think we even mentioned it to these two, because we knew they had something special in mind, and created a story & theme for this shoot, adding a sense of drama and glamour that Adam and I couldn’t get enough of.  I mean it… We couldn’t stop!  Now that we’ve had the chance to meet this lovely couple, we’ll go ahead and start the paper chains, counting down the days until their fall New York wedding on the Hudson next year.  Here’s a few of our favorites from the absolutely-delightful, Subaru-driving new friends – Lisbeth and Earl.

  • K.B. Wesley - So lovely, so loving. A real example of the romance of years gone by. Lisbeth is my niece and is one of a kind, in the very best, creative way. KB

You never know where life will take you and I think I speak for all for photographers, if not everyone, that Paris is somewhere you hope to visit in your lifetime. I actually met Jennifer while attending college and she had continued to follow our work for the past few years. When we received an email from her we could not have been more excited to hear “Hi, Adam! We have not spoken in awhile but I am getting married and we have to have you as our photographers.” After getting to know her hubby Simon over food and drinks in Austin we immediately hit it off and had a blast getting to hear how they met and the details they had planned. Jennifer & Simon are two of the kindest most laid back people we have ever encountered and quickly became friends! If traveling across the Atlantic for their perfect day was not enough, they insisted on taking us to one of their favorite restaurants, that was a gem to say the least. We cannot thank you enough for the trust and your genuine kindness.

Thank you again Jennifer & Simon and we can’t wait to see soon!
